PG 330 Be a Husband of Valor
Schedule: 6 weeks, Aug. 21 – Sept. 25
Fees: No cost
Description: This class is for the man who genuinely intends to reach toward God's expectation of what he must be as a man and as a husband. Those with just a casual interest need not attend. The Church of Jesus Christ must have strong families lead by sturdy men who are husbands of valor. Being what God expects one to be as a husband does not come easily or even naturally. It requires dedication, obedience to the Word of God, and a never-ending intention of reaching higher and becoming better. Leaders lead. There is no room for wimps as husbands. It is time to step at up. Be the man of the house and be your wife's man. This requires making decisive, God-honoring decisions. The husband must be the spiritual leader and priest of his home. He must be the strong leader whom his wife will desire to follow. He must also lead his wife in passion, romance, intimacy, excitement, work, serving, adventure and fun. The rewards are magnificent, yet the deliberate efforts to get there are exhilarating in themselves for the man and his wife
Homework: Challenging homework assignments each week.
